2nd International FEV Conference
Zero CO2 Mobility
The European emission reduction goals, ratified in the Paris agreement, require major CO2 emission reductions from the transportation sector. However, there appears to be little or no consensus about the best solution for achieving these goals.
Increasingly, the experts agree on the conclusion that, while propulsion system electrification is an important component of the solution, it is not the only approach for achieving CO2-neutral mobility. In particular, when “well-to-wheel” rather than “tank-to wheel” efficiency is considered, alternative fuels become increasingly interesting as solutions.
Achieving a balanced fleet strategy requires focus on needs-based propulsion system solutions that assure sustainable and clean mobility. In this sense, a mixture of electrification, optimized combustion engines and synthetic fuels appears to be a promising combination. While e-vehicles can lower local emissions in short distance and inner-city driving if they can penetrate the market insufficient quantities, synthetic fuels represent a good means for minimizing CO2 emissions from the conventional internal combustion engines in existing fleets. As a result, the percentage of renewable energy across the mobility sector is directly increased with fuels based on electricity. In combination with further optimization of the combustion process, CO2 emissions can be minimized, approaching zero emissions.
About the FEV conference on Zero CO2 Mobility
After the positive feedback in 2017 the international FEV conference on "Zero CO2 Mobility" will take place again this year and become a certified climate-friendly event. The atmosfair logo certifies the compensation of the conference’s CO2 emissions through climate protection projects that have been approved by the Unit-ed Nations’ CDM Executive Board.
Again, the conference will offer a platform for strategic discus-sion on the potential and per- formance of various zero CO2 emission strategies and intro-duce the latest developments in the fields of battery technol-ogies, fuel cells and e-fuels.
You are cordially invited to join the other conference participants from the fields of research, development and politics as an important contributor to this forum of experts.
